I have several groups of very close friends with whom I try to organize outings on a regular basis. We’ve been to Screen on the Green, listened to Jazz in the Sculpture Garden, played bocce in the park, or just had drinks on a roof top patio. I love it when worlds collide and one group of friends meshes well with another. The man I fall for will be able to jump right into the fray, participating in any conversation and making those around him laugh.
DC has become my adopted home, but I love my hometown, Indianapolis, and will defend its best traits - politeness, fabulous work ethic, and a laid-back "we can fix any problem with a little ingenuity and effort" attitude - with a fervor most would reserve for their college basketball team. My Midwest roots and my amazing family taught me well to be pragmatic and prepared, if a little too practical. Practical is fine if you're organizing your closet, but I crave the next adventure, the romantic gesture, and whatever surprises life has to offer. So… surprise me!
